Osborne Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of advanced pig production equipment, is pleased to announce that it will be exhibiting at VIV Russia, the nation’s premiere feed-to-meat tradeshow and conference that represents every step in the livestock meat production process. The show is held in Moscow, Russia, from May 23-25, 2017. Osborne will be present in Hall 8, stand 10D1.
Osborne USA will be showcasing the ACCU-ARM® Survey Scale™, an automated pig sorting scale for large pen finishing. Osborne’s Survey Scale is a component of Osborne’s exclusive Weight Watcher™ growth management system: a sorting and feeding system that allows producers to feed pigs based on their actual weight and produce more uniform animals for marketing.
A concept developed from extensive research and animal behavior studies by Osborne USA engineers and scientists, Weight Watcher uses animals’ natural movements from feed to water to automatically weigh and sort animals. Lightweight animals can be fed a high-performance feed to accelerate gain and cut time to market, while heavy pigs receive a ration that maximizes return on gain. Feed is automatically phased to match growth rates and minimize wasted nutrients. Successful implementation of the Weight Watcher system allows producers to turn barns quicker and market more pounds of pork.
Additionally, Osborne USA will showcase the latest model of its well-known FIRE® (Feed Intake Recording Equipment) pig performance testing system. FIRE is an ad-libitum feeding system that automates individual animals’ daily feed intake and other performance characteristics for the genetic, feed and pharmaceutical testing of pigs. The system is successfully used by more research and genetics companies than any other performance testing system.
Visitors can take advantage of learning about Osborne’s complete product line that ranges from traditional equipment like Stanfield® pig heating mats and Big Wheel® feeders, to advanced, automated systems like Weight Watcher, FIRE, and AGRI-AIDE® farm ventilation systems.
